Background

BuySomeTime was founded in 2015 by Rachel Gregorowski. Originally from the UK, having worked for over 10 years in the corporate world, Rachel moved to Cape Town in 2013.

Having subsequently worked with several small business-owners, it was clear there was a gap in the market for good quality, but affordable business admin support.

Rachel and her team are passionate about helping entrepreneurs grow their businesses and understand the hard work that goes into it.

Testimonials

What our clients say
" We have been using the services of Rachel and BuySomeTime for a little over a year now. Being in the same industry and coming from a very strict and professional background in the auditing and accounting field, we have set very high standards for our clients and suppliers. Not only have Rachel and her team comfortably met these, they brought an entire new dynamic to our business with various skills and experience that we have come to truly value! Rachel has great energy and a ‘can do’ attitude about her. Joining forces on various projects with BuySomeTime has worked out really well and I look forward to many more collaborations between our two businesses in the future. Thank you Rachel and all of the very best to you and your business! "
CATHY HAUMANN
Virtually Admin​
" When we met Rachel, we were in desperate need of an ad-hoc assistant in our business – the Virtual PA service she delivers through BuySomeTime, along with her support team, is vital to anyone needing assistance on a virtual basis, and we jumped at the opportunity to incorporate her service into our offering. She is organised, dedicated, enthusiastic, extremely positive, willing to learn new things and takes proactive action – I have always believed in the JDI (Just Do It) principle when working with other team members, and Rachel ticks ALL the boxes. Rachel is also quite tech savvy, and has introduced us to some great ways to manage previously daunting tasks…so much so that she is now our go-to-girl for most things techy and social media. Without Rachel and BuySomeTime, our business would be way more stressful – with her in it, our “world of work” is a much nicer space to dwell in. "

" Rachel and BuySomeTime have been and continue to be an amazing asset for Cleaver Consulting. Being able to hand off countless hours of tiresome admin work to someone outside of the company while we are trying to run a tech startup has saved us many hours of headaches and allowed us to focus on the core part of the business, and the quality of work is top-class! "
Corne Kooyman
Director at Property Engine
" Rachel from BuySomeTime is the consummate professional. Not only is she a pleasure to work with, she exudes a ‘can-do’ approach, has superb organisation skills, complete resourcefulness, and is highly attentive to efficiency. I have no hesitation in recommending BuySomeTime to reliably take heaps of work away from any desk. "
